.htaccess is a small text file which is placed either directly in a domain folder or inside a subfolder to tell the server how it has to handle requests when an Internet site or a folder that's part of it is accessed. A lot of famous scripts including Joomla and WordPress use an .htaccess file. If you get a considerable amount of fake traffic to your website, for instance, you may block the access of specific IP addresses and third-party websites, or you could request the visitor to input a username and a password in order to see the content. You could also set up URL redirecting or use personalized error pages for your site, prevent other sites from linking to your content directly and from using your account’s traffic quota, and so forth. An .htaccess file will give you far more control over your Internet sites and the way they work.
